The Australian sun is incredibly strong and the UVA and UVB rays can damage the skin over time. A chemical peel can help to peel away surface irregularities and some forms of pigmentation. Dr Wetton performs these peels in a licensed accredited day hospital, because the peels are quite deep, so mostly patients only require one peel, not multiple peels.

What to expect

It is important to understand that this is a resurfacing technique, it is not a lifting technique, so if you have loose skin and very deep lines, the peel will not make a huge difference to your appearance. You can expect to have some redness and oozing of a water liquid from the skin for a few days. Normally the downtime is around 1 week. It is important to follow Dr Wetton’s post operative advice to prevent infection and scarring.

Specific risks: scarring, uneven result, remaining skin irregularities or persisting skin blemishes, hyper or hypo pigmentation.
